The Council on Foundations is pleased to announce the first of two webinars we will offer in preparation for the upcoming “Philanthropy Week in Washington” and “Foundations on the Hill.”
“Creating Effective Stories that Lawmakers Will Remember” will offer tips and tools for crafting an effective message to deliver to your policymakers. We’re pleased to offer this webinar in partnership with the Congressional Management Foundation, which has done extensive research on best practices for influencing lawmakers.
Tuesday, January 28th
2:00 – 3:00 p.m. EST
People have trouble remembering facts, but they never forget a good story. Effective constituent stories have proven to be the most valuable tool in educating and influencing your lawmakers. Learn how to organize and present your organization’s story through a variety of tactics. This presentation includes the seven key elements of constituent story-telling, and walks participants through an exercise to develop their own personal story to move the hearts, minds, and votes of lawmakers.
This webinar is open to all at no charge.
